Quality Care for Kids
When your child needs medical services, you can count on the pediatric staff at Doctors Hospital of Laredo to provide the individual attention and specialized care kids need.
The pediatric staff at Doctors Hospital of Laredo, located in Laredo, Texas, treats children from the age of one month to 17 years old. They offer a range of services such as routine wellness checks to monitor development, immunizations and screenings, care for acute illnesses, prevention, nutrition and safety education as well as behavior evaluations. Pediatric specialists also work with older children and the issues unique to the teenage years (while the staff at Doctors Hospital encourages and facilitates open communication between parents and teenagers, they are permitted to provide confidential care around certain issues by law).
Some pediatric physicians and staff members are bilingual and fluent in Spanish. Interpreters are available if requested in advance for other languages, including American Sign Language.
To help us provide the best care possible for your child, please bring medications, immunization and any applicable medical records and your insurance card to the Hospital.
Pediatric Intensive Care is Just a Short Drive Away
If your child becomes seriously ill or injured, he or she may need more care than can be provided at Doctors Hospital of Laredo. In those cases, we recommend visiting the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at South Texas Health System Children's in Edinburg, Texas. Located on the border, just a two-hour drive from Laredo, South Texas Health System Children's is the first and only hospital in South Texas that was built just for kids. South Texas Health System Children's is staffed by pediatric nurses, therapists and healthcare professionals, and offers a comprehensive range of advanced diagnostic and medical specialties in a pleasant and comfortable kid-friendly environment.
Children and Sleep Disorders
Children with sleep disorders, typically between the ages of two and nine, often fight going to bed. They also demonstrate hyperactivity, impaired attention and behavior problems. A sleep disorder can disrupt a child’s growth hormones causing development issues, learning disabilities and can also affect the facial and jaw structure.
